I've run into the same problems myself, and the reason for this
illegal reloc type mix message, is that the linker is not able
to link your object code with the crt code.

This is due to the fact that you only can generate a.out binaries,
which aren't to good to use when you want dynamically linked
libraries. This is the reason for the invention of elf binaries.

I think I've seen a Convert-To-Elf-Howto-Or-Something doc on, but I haven't actually read it. As for a solution
to your problem, I'm without :).
